An Ad Campaign, Who’s Watching, and West Virginia Over/Under Results

Ad Campaign Idea

I’m thinking most if not all of you missed Reed Ramlow’s comment on this week’s column.

Six-year guaranteed contract for Sark, and still paying Tom Herman. Agents 2, Del Conte and the Board of Regents, 0. If I were a sports agent, I’d target Texas. Dr. Pepper could do a new TV ad series called “Dumbassville.” The Boz can reappear as sheriff. He’d get a kick out of it.

I’m in advertising so believe me when I tell you, Reed’s idea is a winner!

Who’s Watching

According to Willie Earl’s internal polling, 31% of the Texas fans who watched the Arkansas game on television watched the West Virginia game.

West Viriginia Over/Under Results

Despite the Longhorns struggles on the gridiron, almost all the regular Over/Under players turned out for the West Virginia contest.

Reed Ramlow and David Bergstrom tied for first place with seven correct answers. David nosed out the red-hot Mr. Ramlow in the tiebreaker by picking two winners, Ohio State and Kansas City. Reed went with Michigan State and Kansas City. David has placed and showed a couple of times this season, but this is his first win since 2019.

Andy Garrod, D.R. Flower, Greg Swan, David Frink, Mitch Lewis, and Mark Stephan tied for third with five correct answers.

No player picked Roschon Johnson to be Texas’s second-leading rusher. Johnson tallied 77 yards while Keilan Robinson led the team with 111 yards on 9 carries. It’s the first time I can remember a question that nobody got right.

One is the Loneliest Number.

Only one player correctly predicted the Dak Prescott and Patrick Mahomes would tie for the most touchdown passes. Neither threw one.

Only one player predicted that Texas would lose a 4th quarter lead.

Only one player picked Kansas State over Baylor.

The average score was 4.7.

  1. Thanks for the compliment, Willie Earl. Wish it weren’t truth in advertising.

  2. I wonder if Chris Beard or Vic Schaefer can coach football. I don’t think either would be saying these guys are playing hard at a news conference. They would probably both have to be restrained and gagged.

  3. not as bad as Florida — they will be paying four next year

    • As Johnny Carson/Dana Carvey would say, “I did not know that.”
